#### Abstract

The aim of this paper is to introduce some new double difference sequence spaces with the help of the Musielak-Orlicz function and four-dimensional bounded-regular (shortly, *RH*-regular) matrices . We also make an effort to study some topological properties and inclusion relations between these double difference sequence spaces.

#### 1. Introduction, Notations, and Preliminaries

In [1], Hardy introduced the concept of regular convergence for double sequences. Some important work on double sequences is also found by Bromwich [2]. Later on, it was studied by various authors, for example, Móricz [3], Móricz and Rhoades [4], Basarir and Sonalcan [5], Mursaleen and Mohiuddine [6–8], and many others. Mursaleen [9] has defined and characterized the notion of almost strong regularity of four-dimensional matrices and applied these matrices to establish a core theorem (also see [10, 11]). Altay and Basar [12] have recently introduced the double sequence spaces , , , , , and consisting of all double series whose sequence of partial sums are in the spaces , , , , , and , respectively. Basar and Sever [13] extended the well-known space from single sequence to double sequences, denoted by , and established its interesting properties. The authors of [14] defined some convex and paranormed sequences spaces and presented some interesting characterization. Most recently, Mohiuddine and Alotaibi [15] introduced some new double sequences spaces for -convergence of double sequences and invariant mean and also determined some inclusion results for these spaces. For more details on these concepts, one can be referred to [16–18].

The notion of difference sequence spaces was introduced by Kizmaz [19], who studied the difference sequence spaces , , and . The notion was further generalized by Et and Çolak [20] by introducing the spaces , , and .

Let be the space of all complex or real sequences and let and be two nonnegative integers. Then for , we have the following sequence spaces: where and for all , which is equivalent to the following binomial representation:

We remark that for and , we obtain the sequence spaces which were introduced and studied by Et and Çolak [20] and Kizmaz [19], respectively. For more details about sequence spaces see [21–27] and references therein.

An* Orlicz function * is continuous, nondecreasing, and convex such that , for and as . If convexity of Orlicz function is replaced by , then this function is called* modulus function*. Lindenstrauss and Tzafriri [28] used the idea of Orlicz function to define the following sequence space:
which is known as an Orlicz sequence space. The space is a Banach space with the norm

Also it was shown in [28] that every Orlicz sequence space contains a subspace isomorphic to . An Orlicz function can always be represented in the following integral form: where is known as the kernel of , is a right differentiable for is nondecreasing, and as .

A sequence of Orlicz functions is said to be a* Musielak-Orlicz function* (see [29, 30]). A sequence is defined by
which is called the complementary function of a Musielak-Orlicz function . For a given Musielak-Orlicz function , the Musielak-Orlicz sequence space and its subspace are defined as follows:
where is a convex modular defined by

We consider equipped with the Luxemburg norm or equipped with the Orlicz norm

A Musielak-Orlicz function is said to satisfy if there exist constants and a sequence (the positive cone of ) such that the inequality holds for all and , whenever .

A double sequence is said to be* bounded* if . We denote by the space of all bounded double sequences.

By the convergence of double sequence we mean the convergence in the Pringsheim sense; that is, a double sequence is said to* converge* to the limit in Pringsheim sense (denoted by, ) provided that given there exists such that whenever (see [31]). We will write more briefly as -convergent. If, in addition, , then is said to be* boundedly P-convergent* to . We will denote the space of all bounded convergent double sequences (or boundedly -convergent) by .

Let and let be given. By , we denote the characteristic function of the set .

Let be a four-dimensional infinite matrix of scalers. For all , where , the sum is called the - of the double sequence . A double sequence is said to be - to the limit if the -means exist for all in the sense of Pringsheim’s convergence:

A four-dimensional matrix is said to be* bounded-regular* (or* RH-*regular) if every bounded -convergent sequence is -summable to the same limit and the -means are also bounded.

The following is a four-dimensional analogue of the well-known Silverman-Toeplitz theorem [32].

#### 2. The Double Difference Sequence Spaces

In this section, we define some new paranormed double difference sequence spaces with the help of Musielak-Orlicz functions and four-dimensional bounded-regular matrices. Before proceeding further, first we recall the notion of paranormed space as follows.

A linear topological space over the real field (the set of real numbers) is said to be a* paranormed space* if there is a subadditive function such that , , and scalar multiplication is continuous; that is, and imply for all ’s in and all ’s in , where is the zero vector in the linear space .

The linear spaces , , and were defined by Maddox [35] (also, see Simons [36]).

Let be a Musielak-Orlicz function; that is, is a sequence of Orlicz functions and let be a nonnegative four-dimensional bounded-regular matrix. Then, we define the following: where is a double sequence of real numbers such that for , , and is a double sequence of strictly positive real numbers.

*Remark 2. *If we take in and , then we have the following spaces:

*Remark 3. *Let for all . Then and are reduced to
respectively.

*Remark 4. *Let for all . Then, the spaces and are reduced to
respectively.

*Remark 5. *If we take in and , then we have the following spaces:

*Remark 6. *If we take and in and , then we have the following spaces:

*Remark 7. *Let for all . If, in addition, and , then the spaces and are reduced to and which were introduced and studied by Yurdakadim and Tas [37] as below:

Throughout the paper, we will use the following inequality: let and be two double sequences. Then
where and (see [15]). We will also assume throughout this paper that the symbol will denote the sublinear Musielak-Orlicz function.

Since for any fixed natural number , from (38) we have
By letting in the above expression we obtain

Since is arbitrary, by letting we obtain

Thus as . This proves that is a complete topological linear space.

Now we will show that is a complete topological linear space. For this, since is also a sequence in by definition of , for each , there exists with

and so

Hence . So is an ideal in for a Musielak-Orlicz function which satisfies the -condition.

Now, we have to show that is closed. Let ; there exists such that . For every there exists such that, for all , . Now, for , we have

Since and is* RH*-regular, we get
so . This completes the proof.

Theorem 17. *Let be a bounded sequence, a sublinear Musielak-Orlicz function which satisfies the -condition, and a nonnegative four-dimensional -regular matrix. Then .*

*Proof. *Without loss of generality we may take and establish
